If you are getting heartily fed up of receiving the same old boring gifts every time your birthday or Christmas comes around, then it’s time to take action and start dropping a few hints about those gorgeous silk scarves that you’d really like.

Let’s face it, when it comes to the men in our lives, they’re not always the most imaginative creatures at those present-buying times of year, and sometimes even our female friends can be way off the mark when they choose the gifts to present us with.  What a pity though, for everyone to go around wasting their hard-earned cash on things that we don’t really want or have any use for when they could be spending it on a wonderful luxury item that’s going to be used time and time again.

 

Although it might be a bit rude to just blurt out to our friends and loved ones what we’d really like for a birthday or Christmas present, it doesn’t hurt to hint at the things that we really cherish in the hope that they will take notice.  Do be warned though, if you want the man in your life to sit up and take notice, don’t mention those sumptuous silk scarves and shawls while he’s watching sport on TV and do be prepared to have to mention them more than once if you want to drive the message home.

Of course, if you’re going to angle for one of the fabulous examples from the collections of silk scarves or shawls, you might as well aim for the best and mention the superb hand painted accessories which are available online.  Feel free to wax lyrical about the sumptuous 100% pure silk and the totally unique designs which are hand painted by talented artists to create these stunning works of wearable art.  Be sure to mention the prices too though, otherwise your loved ones are likely to think that these gorgeous accessories will be out of their financial reach and you’ll just end up with the same box of chocolates or bottle of perfume that you usually get.

Because silk scarves and shawls come in such a wide range of colors and patterns, it’s probably helpful if you indicate to your loved ones which colors and designs most appeal to you.  Just a general idea of a theme for the pattern will do fine and then you will still get a lovely surprise when your fabulous scarf or shawl with its one-off design arrives.

Don’t think of hinting about the gift that you’d like as being cheeky.  Think of it as doing your loved ones a favor.  After all, if they’re going to buy for you at all, it might just as well be something that you want!

Men, of course, don’t have the monopoly on the tailored look and the wearing of suits. For decades, women’s suits have featured strongly on the fashion scene, especially for business wear, and somehow there is still nothing to rival the crisp and stylish look of a professional woman in a smart skirt or pant suit.

In some professions, suits are required to be worn as a uniform, such as is the case for members of air cabin crews.  In other lines of work they are the outfit of choice, often because of the fact that they demand that their wearers be taken seriously for the professionals that they are.  In addition, the combined sharpness of the style and the fabric provides an overall  impression of being incredibly well-groomed and chic.

Although light-colored suits are ideal for semi-formal wear, when it comes to the workplace it is typically the darker colors such as black, charcoal grey and navy blue which are considered most appropriate.  For many women, however, while the elegance of these shades makes them wonderful to wear, the colors themselves can begin to feel rather mundane when worn every day.  What is needed, therefore, is just a touch of color to add that extra little bit of interest, and this is something which can be achieved through the use of accessories.

Of course, whatever accessory you choose to team up with a stunningly smart business suit must itself be of the highest quality, otherwise the whole outfit will lose some of its appeal.  This is why women’s silk scarves, and particularly hand painted silk scarves, make some of the very best choices.  Not only is the 100% pure silk a perfect match with the fine fabric of the suit in terms of quality, but the uniqueness of the glorious hand painted designs set them apart as something truly special.

Hand painted silk scarves are produced using an age-old technique which makes it virtually impossible to reproduce the same design.  This means that the wearers of these women’s scarves are guaranteed a look of total individuality and inimitable style, even if the styles of their suits are fairly standard.  Also, the softness and delicacy of the fabric lends a touch of femininity to what could otherwise be quite a masculine look.

Worn around the neck or shoulders, silk scarves add glamour, sophistication and that all-important touch of color to smart tailored suits, so why not check out the gorgeous range of hand painted silk scarves which can be found online at specialist suppliers?

For daytime wear, some of the most fashionable designs of silk scarves are also some of the simplest.  Bright rainbow stripes and checkered patterns in a variety of different colors are perfect for keeping out the cold, as well as for adding a stylish and modern twist to an outfit.  When worn with plain office attire or casual outfits, stripes and checks provide added interest without making an ensemble look overly fussy.

Of course, for those fabulous evenings out on the town, silk scarves which carry modern abstract designs are just perfect.  Bold geometric designs in vibrant colors give an incomparable look of pizzazz and, with hand painted silk scarves, there is no need to worry about bumping into someone else who is wearing the same thing, or about being upstaged by an outfit which is more luxurious or stylish.

Creating a high fashion look doesn’t have to mean choosing from the collections of repeat styles and patterns which are available in the department stores or looking like a clone.  With fabulous hand painted silk scarves, you can achieve a wonderfully modern look which is all your own.
